In December I will be showing a new evolution of ‘Paths of Resistance’ as part of SPARK: Artist Interventions in a Time of Crisis.

An exhibition of a network of North-West artists concerned with intervention in the climate crisis.

SPARK is the first exhibition by members of the SPARK Artists Network, who have been meeting since June 2022. Their monthly events have included guerilla gardening, moss walks, exploring urban and rural ecologies, tours of political sites and exhibition visits.

The exhibition aims to engender conversation and collaboration and foster the cross-pollination of ideas. The artists examine how their interventions can affect change, questioning whether art canbe productive with or without overt activism. The exhibition, programme and conversations deriving from them will shape the future direction and plans of the Spark Artists Network.

The exhibition will be on show at Rogue Project Space
